Bees Dangerous to All Animals

FAIRFAX, Va. (October 25, 2013) – A bee’s stinger has one purpose – to protect it from all possible threats. While humans are most often the targets of angry swarms whose hives they disturbed, dogs, horses, and even zoo animals are also at risk.

Because an angry swarm defends its home against all perceive predators, it is important to take proper precautions when searching for or attempting to remove a hive. Homeowners are advised to seek out a bee pest control professional rather than try to address a potential infestation themselves.
